with the current government funding measure now set to expire in less than 10 days. meanwhile, the white house let it be known late last night that president obama will announce today his nomination of assistant attorney general tom perez for the open labor secretary seat on his cabinet. and at the national press club here in washington this morning, republican national committee chairman reice preibus is set to release a report for a plan on how to expand the party in the future. and that's where we want to begin with you this morning in our first 45 minutes on the "washington journal." we want to hear from republican callers, just republican callers today about this report and the recommendations in it. in these first 45 minutes, we'll set up the phone lines for republicans in the eastern and central region at 202-585-3880. in the mountain and pacific region, republicans can call 202-585-3881. you can also catch up with us on all your favorite social media silingtse, on twitter and to ook, or email us journal@c-span.org. i want to take you to the statement yesterday. he was on cbs' "face the na
's consider working together on areas to change how the government does business and give more value to the taxpayer while we get spending under control. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from georgia, mr. arrow, for five minutes. mr. barrow: mr. speaker, i rise today to urge my colleagues to join me in support of house joint resolution 33 which would reshape the way washington operates. because congress has failed to do its job to find the spending cuts we need to replace the sequester, folks all across this country, including folks in my district in georgia, will pay the price. unfortunately in washington there are rules that prevent members of congress from being penalized for not doing their jobs. the constitution doesn't protect the folks at home so why should it protect the pay of members of congress? the 27th amendment of the constitution was written to prevent members of congress from giving themselves pay increases, but lately it's been used as a shield to prevent a congressional pay cut. my proposal, house joint resolutio
, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something that stands on lies and greed, protecting that must not be consistent with god's will. in his 2010 world day of peace message entitled "if you want to cultivate peace, protect creation," pope benedict xvi called upon the faithful, and i quote -- "to protect the environment and to safeguard natural resources and the clim
, you know, the federal government and the banks don't want you to save money, because the banks can get their money from the fed for 0% so why would they let people save money. they would dread you put the money in the stock market and take a chance you're going to gain or lose. it's against a person wanting to save money. host: when did you start saving? caller: i'd say about 20 years before i retired. host: and you retired at what age? caller: 59. old enough to start drawing my 401-k. host: so the company you work for provided a 401-k? that's when you started investing? caller: yes, but you know they didn't match anything. what i put in there was my money but we had profit sharing. but they never matched what i put in. it was my money. host: do you think that -- did you ever use a financial advisor? caller: no. i got my money in chase, managed accounts, they managed my money. before it was through fidelity, and i could manipulate it myself, and that's when i lost half my money, because i didn't move it fast enough, and i took a big hit. host: so you didn't take it out of riskiers a cr
get it. there is new government job out there one agency is creating. pays six figures a year. might check it out despite the punishing budge jubt cuts we're hearing about. bill: benghazi six months later. the six simple questions one lawmaker that the believes the administration is dodging. >> the fact we have four dead americans. was it a protest or guys out for a walk decided they would go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? usual breakfast sandwich. a lot more flavor. [ anouncer ] ihop's new griddle melts... made fresh and hot! hand crafted just for you. it's like a sexy sandwich. [ anouncer ] compare new griddle melts yourself. just $4. it's like a sexy sandwich. it's an epic breakfast sandwich. martha: crews are now cleaning up the scene of that deadly plane crash that happened in the south bend, indiana. a crain is removing huge chunks of the private jet that crashed into a home on sunday. it took the lives of two people that crash, including the pilot of the plane and his friend, former oklahoma quarterback steve davis, who led the sooners to nati
they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the government's budget. if we continue on our current path, the medicare trust fund will be insolvent by 2024. and medicare and medicaid will grow from 24% of the federal budget to almost 30%, crowding out other needed investments. we have to reduce health care costs in both the private sector and public sector in order to ensure america remains competitive in a global market, but there is a right way to reform our health care system and there is a wrong way. with all due respect, mr. ryan's path is the wrong way. mr. ryan's plan for medicare and medicaid misses the point. his solution simply shifts the costs from government to patients rather than reducing health care costs. under the ryan budget, seniors would pay as much as $1,200 more each year by 2030 and $6,000 more by 2050. for over half of medicare beneficiaries with incomes less than $21,000, a $1,200 increase is a huge piece of their budget. he also proposes block granting medicaid, which would cut medicaid funding by approximately $700 billion over the next decade and
, to the prestige and credibility of the u.s. government are daunting and dismaying if we found the wmd it would have been different. it totally would have been different but we didn't. >> sure. right. >> so are the american people more likely to question the challenge of this country being capable and on a proper premise to go into war? >> absolutely. i mean, those poll numbers that you cited way back when, ten years ago, were reflective of what the american people were told by its government, by its president, its secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. and so i think going forward, particularly with the saber rattling with iran and what's being talked about with north korea and its belligerence, the american people are going to be very cautious. i should say m
works towards a nuclear weapon. and as we try to determine whether the government of syria has already deployed chemical weapons against its own people. because, in the words of our president, that would be a game changer. >> we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was the nature of the incident, that what can we document? what can we prove. i have instructed my teams to work closely with all of the countries in the region and international organizations and institutions. to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. >> shepard: talk of syria dominated much of the president's news conference in jerusalem this afternoon. he spoke alongside benjamin netanyahu. just a day after both the syrian regime and the syrian rebels accused each other of deploying chemical weapons. now, so far u.s. officials say they have no evidence that those accusations are true on either side. but president obama says he is deeply skeptical that of any claim that the opposition rebels used chemical weapons at all. he did not say the same of the syrian regime. we have team
how government raises and spends money. >> wow. >> just 19% support the way congressional republicans are dealing with it. and it was nearly split. 47% sided with the president, 46% sided with republicans, and i wonder, joe, if this is at least inspiration enough for them to just get a deal. is anyone going to get worse than this? really? why can't they at least get something done. >>> i think politically the pressure is more on the president for this reason. you go -- you ask somebody -- it's kind of like lawyers. i found that everybody hated lawyers, right? >> yep. everybody loves their own lawyer. you should have seen what she did in court. man, let me give you my lawyer's number. it's the same thing with congressmen. everybody hates congressmen, but hey, my guy, my woman, they go up there and boy they fight. so, again, you've got to put yourself in the position of a congressman looking at 31% approval rating going, yeah, that's fine. i'm saying that 74%, the words of dire straits, you know, i got a daytime job, i'm doing all right. i think the pressure when you look at these numbe
that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria. we want to go to our senior international correspondent ivan watson in amman, jordan, this morning. and iv
the library had been run privately and the federal government had kept all of president nixon's papers in washington, one of the outcomes of watergate, and my job was to bring it together and have a federally funded and administered library in california with the papers. so we started this oral history project 30 years late. and after all, it's much better when you get people when they're just out of the administration. and another since talking years later the time to, and may be more candid. the really, really older gentleman of the entity for the library had been with richard nixon in the '60s. you just mentioned something about him pushing him out. without exception, the men who had been with them in the '50s, he pushed away when he got to the white house. and he brought close to him younger people. he enjoyed having of the people around, but younger people he could mold and shape. and a lot of the trouble that arose was that these younger people were willing to do what he wanted them to do. whereas the older people and the numbers we interviewed wanted, kept saying no, don't do th
on in iraq now is the shia plurality, dominating a government and trying to dominate the kurds and the sunnis. i think it is more a continuing ethnic struggle where iraq's neighbors wish them no good. the iranians supporting the shia, the sunni arabs supporting anb anbar provinces. >> the "washington post" describeding him as neither the failed state, nor the model democracy some had wanted. what is the state of the government right now from your perspective there? >> reporter: well, there is a few different tests. on one hand, it is a country that hasn't completely grappled with democracy. it hasn't struggled in materials of creating more political freedom but there is no doubt democracy has not taken route across the country. the central government still struggles in the northern part of the country under kurdish control. it is a loose amalf. the government is rife with political corruption. there is indeed as we just heard, sectarian tension among political parties. still a lot of missing people in iraq. so by some estimates, although there is more political freedom and freedom of expressi
their taxes as well. we're talking about the thousands of government federal employees dodging the i.r.s. should they be fired? we've got an update on that this morning. >>brian: you think a woman's cheating husband would get the message. after she uses a billboard for revenge. but the best part is how she paid for it. look at that. "fox & friends" starts right gnaw. >>steve: welcome to march madness live here on the "fox & friends" set. >>alisyn: good to be with you all. >>steve: the president is out of the country, 50-hour sprint in israel. we have a situation where a lot of you are saying it is so cold here, i can't wait for vacation. we have a great segment in about 20 minutes. we have the founders and c.e.o. of 14 sandals, three beaches. wouldn't they like to see alisoe just as a token. we might have a beaches bureau. >>alisyn: let's do it. i volunteer. let's talk about the middle east. the president is making his first trip to israel since becoming president and there's a lot of tension, including this attack with rockets fired across the border. >>steve: indeed. somewhere in g
got that one wrong as well saying it was a responsibility. that it's not the government that should be in your lives making sure there is shelter over your head, making sure you have food on the table, medicine to keep you well and health care essentially. she says this is the american dream that i believe in. that's what i've been trying to teach my kids and this test is going against it. >>brian: it was on facebook and now has become a huge story. an update on that fox news alert. a shooting in quantico, virginia, where a suspected shooter killed two marines and then killed himself. sherry ly joins us live with the details. when did this happen? >> this happened at 11:00 last night at the officer candidate school. we're told that the gunman and the two victims were all active-duty marines. it started at that officer candidate school. one person was shot dead. according to a base spokesman at quantico, the gunman headed to a barracks, barricaded himself inside. military police as well as law enforcement were called in. a special reaction team went into the barracks where they found
in teaching. ie. kill gun. the government rebound sight quickly removed it replacing it about this, sorry there is no quote of the day but if you look at it says sorry there is no quote the of the day. >> i bond fer they wrote that quickly. that is how i live my life. there is no quote of the day. a department it of ed spokesman acknowledged the error saying this feature which automatically generates one education related quote per day from a database of quotes last updated in 2007 has been temporarily suspended. i guess because since 2007 they didn't know that that was a murderer didn't know that. >> suspended pending a review of the database content. i believe we have tape of what happened next to the error prone database. that is what he did to his people, america. bernie, this could only happen in the obama administration. >> is absolutely right. speaking of money, you you know, it is not that incongruous because they are paying for the department of education among other things. >> we owe them everything. >> absolutely right. quote away. i mean he killed his own people. he didn't kil
than the government takes in. continue os soned -- to spend more money than washington takes in, and the people of this great country understand we can't continue going down this road over and over and over. a couple of points that mr. scott made regarding the republican budget which is the budget that is the base budget here that we're bringing to the floor that in fact does get to balance in a responsible way. it saves an strengthens and secures medicare as opposed to the misinformation that was provided by the other side. it makes certain that states have the kind of flexibility so they're able to provide the highest quality of health care to their medicaid population. it doesn't, as a matter of fact, address in a specific way the issue of social security because it provides for a reserve fund so that's able to be addressed in a more specific way through the committee structure which is also the important thing to recognize about the issue of tacks. our friends on the other side are specific about what they accuse us of regarding tax bus as you know, mr. chairman, it's the wa
. there is no precedent for something off that ticket and thrust into governing responsibility. the balance he has to strike is doing his demanding day job and maintaining his options in the event he wants to run for president and a difficult balance to strike. >> you know him well. do you sense he aspires to more nationally? did he get a taste for president politics the last time around? >> i don't want to speak for him but i think he continues to have a taste and ambition to have a big impact on some of these issues he cares about nationally. he's a number of ways he can do it punish. mark leibovich wrote that article. paul ryan can't lose. meaning he could run for president if he stays in congress, he'll be chairman of ways and means committee and some talk about him playing a more prominent role in leadership so he has to decide where he can make his mark. no one i believe has done more to advance the conservative policy agenda in terms of where he has moved through republican congress the last for a years. >> mark, he's a young man, in his early 40s. he has a lot of politics ahead of him. wha
, the hard work of actually governing this church begins. it's the transition from style to substance. that's going to be the story going forward. >> hmm, interesting. all right, let's talk about going forward a little bit as we enter what is the most holy kind of year in the catholic church, the season of easter. outside of the pomp and circumstance, as we head into this time, what happens with what the pope does next? >> well, obviously the preparations now for holy week, he's learning to do what he's been doing as a priest for many years. he was or tained a priest in 1969, so celebrating mass for holy week is not new to him. celebrating it as pope is huge. i'm sure there's a lot of last-minute preparations as all of his assistants who coordinate those things are trying to learn his preferences. and we're seeing a lot of those kinds of things. we talked earlier about the fact that his -- his worth has been rather general and painting with broad brush strokes. so we're right now reading symbols. we're looking at his vesture and the things he's choosing to do. >> what that could mean. >> ho
the relationship with israel, with its government in particular so that john kerry can come in and with new ideas and be received, better than some of obama's first-term ideas were received. so there is a point to this trip, but it's a building block trip. >>> jeff goldberg, thank you very much, as always. >> thank you. >>> and up next, in our "daily fix" who killed the senate assault weapons ban. >>> plus mark sanford survives round 1 in south carolina, and why is bill clinton getting involved in the kentucky democratic senate race against ashley judd? send me your thoughts on facebook and twitter. this is "andrea mitchell reports" live in israel, only on msnbc.

are in a good spot. >> the government is likely to stay open. >> the revenue discussion is over. >> at least for now. >> how could you describe the current state of the gop? >> you're asking me a question i can't answer. >> this is a party in turmoil. >> it's not about the messaging. it's the message. >> get ready, america, for a brand new republican party. >> we have a party that's goodbye to be inclusive. >> sign up today and get a free bag of weed. >>> the most memorable and most important day in the history of american presidential trips to israel was today. president richard nixon was the first president to go to israel. he may have done to simply to distract public attention from the investigation that was corroding his presidency and eventually led to his resignation, because we have had precious few presidents more cynical than richard nixon. the next president, gerald ford, did not go to israel. president jimmy carter visited israel, but ronald reagan never thought israel was worth the trip. nor did his successor, president george h.w. bush. then president bill clinton made up for t
government has used chemical weapons on its own people near the city of oleppo. listen to this. >> i have a high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used. we need that final verification. we need to step up in the world community to prevent a humanitarian disaster. >> we're tapping into the global resources of cnn this morning to bring you the most complete coverage of the developing story. we have a reporter in jerusalem. ivan watson is in jordan and chris lawrence is live at the pentagon. sarah, how did the developments in syria affect the president's agenda on this trip? >> reporter: well, not much. this has been a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. tha
it has gotten. is the pathetic state of our federal government. back in washington john boehner didn't seem too concerned about the president's slip of the tongue. >> so much for the charm offensive. as i like to say you only tease the ones you love. i would rather be heckeled an ignored. >> michael: wait, he is not teasing you because he loves you. the president is genuinely glad that you are thousands of miles away, and if you want to know why take a look at congress. today republicans did what they always do when faced with an easy decision they made a big fuss threatened to shut the whole thing down and then gave in. they also planned to reintroduce paul ryan's draconian service-slashing budget the same exacting budget that went nowhere last session. but if that's how they want to play, democrats are more than happy to jump in the ring with them. the dccc is always hinting how it will use ryan's budget against republican candidates in 2014 just like they did in 2012. today they released this video. >> she joined mitt romney in supporting paul ryan's budget
they worship. how many bombs from toronto to buffalo before the government demand that we stop it. >> 5,000, 300, 100. >> no, one rocket is all it would take. now, the israelis have been asked to just let it go. anybody who wonders have a safe haven for jews is necessary? they ought to ask me, i'll tell you what i've learned from the spoorns thexperience t january and i sat in the place where 1.1 million jews were murdered in cold blood and chills came over me and i prayed the world may never, never forget what happened. when i visited the museum in jerusalem a tcouple years ago, a brutal reminder what happens when politicians make decisions that don't involve their brain. when people waun their homes, it shows a level of naive taye that makes chamberlain look like churchill. you can't negotiate with people who don't think you have the right to exist. our secretary of state visited egypt and handed over a check 250 million dollars when we're ending white house tours. and why are we giving f-16's and abrams tanks, and the president associated with terrorist organization and publicly call
views or governing philosophy but for making stuff up. tonight we are featuring michele bachmann. tonight she raced away from our dana bash who was trying to ask her questions about remarks michele bachmann made at the conservative political action conference over the weekend. in the statements she slammed the white house reaction during the attack that killed four americans in libya last fall. >> a war was raging in benghazi for hours and all we know is that our president went awol. >> while cries from american diplomats and soldiers went unanswered. >> then she shifted to government spending specifically the white house budget. >> a new book is out talking about the perks and excess of the $1.4 billion a year presidency that we are paying for. this is a lifestyle that is one of excess. now we find out that there are five chefs on air force one. there are two projectionists who operate the white house movie theater. they regularly sleep at the white house in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really, really late show. and i don't mean to be petty here
, these kids lose a parent in the war, they can have help from the u.s. government to go to college. only now, those grants are being cut. by more than a third. here you go, kid. sorry about your mom, your dad, go study up on the sequester. last week, the army announced it was suspended new grants for tuition assistance for soldiers themselves. again, the sequester. and a situation where troops returning from war are forced to wait in a very, very, very long line for the benefits we oweded them. the benefits we promised them and for which they are eligible. nearly 900,000 veterans waiting right now just to hear back from the veterans administration. the average wait to hear back now is nine months. it's even longer if you have just come back from iraq or aufg. with so many veterans now able to come home, we have not done what we need to do in order to accommodate them, so the wait times are getting longer and not shorts. wait times and kuos to college grants, they're not a scam like the thing rick scott's lieutenant governor was tied up in. there's no one profiting from this national embarras
to build one. both agree it will take another year to build nuclear weapons once the government in iran decides to go in that direction. so i've got good hope now, new hope on a number of grounds, one, the two countries are in agreement. two, this means that they will see the united states ready to strike should they decide to build a nuclear bomb. why? because there's no reason for this trip to israel this week unless obama was ready to do just that. they pounded out a serious agreement between the two courts, the u.s. and israel. the people of the united states are not the obama audience. the best result is over the other side, over in tehran. they get to see how serious we are. they build a weapon, we come at them. if they know that now, it could change everything. >>> and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, don't believe the hype. all the gops talk about change is just that. talk. a bunch of hot air. today, almost every single republican in the house v
with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us supporting israeli security, we're talking $3 billion a year to help them maintain a military presence in the region, hundreds more to fund an iron dome defense system to protect israelis from rockets coming out of hamas or southern lebanon. so they're in lock step on a number of key issues there have been these dust ups
the republicans miss is that even rich people need government. even if it is just to build the runways for their golf stream jets. it is not a case of charity. we're all in this together. this is the essential message that barack obama ran on with robert and ran on again in his re-election campaign. the republicans don't get that basic concept. even when they're talking about government programs, they're talking about them as charity. they're not charity. >> steve schmidt we're out of time on this segment, need a quick word before you go. your reaction to cpac? >> i said a couple weeks ago, it has become the star wars bar scene of the conservative movement. it was certainly that and more as we look at this. the good news for republicans is that group's power is mostly illusory. they're a group that will make a lot of noise, it will be incumbent on our serious candidates to call out the excesses of some of the people at cpac to be taken seriously by the middle of the country. >> robert gibbs, steve schmidt, howard fineman, thank you for joining me tonight. >>> coming up, a new poll show
of the disasters of iraq was the dissolution of the state. so when bashar al assad goes, and the government believes ultimately he will, those institutions, those governing bodies will be necessary for the day after. for those people who are left holding the bag, what has become basically a sectarian war, to put back a government. it is a critical lesson and a police take we cannot ever make again. >> as we look back and relitigate the war in iraq, i think it is easy to say on its face, it was a clear mistake and we'll never do this again, how could we do this. let's not forget that. a lot of democrats voted for this war. including hillary clinton. that's what i want to ask you about it. she voted for the iraq war resolution in 2002. 2007, refused to see that vote as a police take. she has defended that since. i'm wondering if you think that is going to be a political problem for her. in 2016 if she ends up running. >> let me say a couple things. having been in the white house i realize how hard it is to govern and to make these national security decisions. it is not black and white and it
statement made by the iraqi government, the statement by the iraqi government yesterday that iraq has no weapons of mass destruction and is not developing any? >> they're lying. next? >> it is not knowable if force will be used, but if it is to be used, it could last, you know, six days, six weeks, i doubt six months. >> i doubt six months. >> my favorite donald rumsfeld assertions were how specific he tried to get about these things they were making up. 11 days into the war, he was asked by abc if he was surprised american forces hadn't found any weapons of mass destruction. his response, not at all. we know where they are. they are in the area around tikrit and baghdad and east, west, south, and north somewhat, yes, north, south, east and west somewhat. we know exactly where they are. donald rumsfeld is running from that history, having said things like that, made claims like that, not in passing, but as a case to the american people why we had to wage this war. donald rumsfeld has been running from what he did for years now. in 2006 while the war was at its height, a 27 year ve
that would have allowed government officials to dip into the personal bank accounts of its citizens to fund a bailout. what's next? and with our nation facing a financial crisis, could it happen here? >>steve: we're talking to fox business network's charles payne. scary what's going on in cyprus. you see long lines, people up against the a.t.m. because the banks aren't open yet. >> it is scary because anywhere in the world people think their savings accounts are off limits. you've worked hard for this money. here's the thing. they were ready to tax everyone. i don't care if you would ten euro zone in the bank or a million euros in the bank, they were going to hit you with this tax. obviously that scares the heck out of people. >>alisyn: luckily it was shot down, that plan, because it was so controversial. how did europe react to all of this? >> it's interesting because i don't think the europeans were ready for this to happen. they hatched the plan over last weekend, the i.m.f., e.c.b. and the european union and i think they thought they had the votes. this puts them in a precarious positio
and democratic state if things don't change. and he urged young israelis to pressure their government because he said politicians do not take risks unless there is public pressure for change. that was his key message. >> one thing that struck a lot of folks, the president's different stance and tone in regards to this trip. let's listen to remarks that president obama made in cairo in 2009 compared to remark he is gave in ramallah on thursday. take a look. >> this construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. it is time for these settlements to stop. how do we get a sovereignty for the palestinian people and assure security for the israeli people? that's not to say settlements are not important t is to say that if we some those two problems, the settlement problem will be solved. >> bill schneider that is a significant reversal what is behind that? >> he wants to get the peace talks started, the palestinians have essentially echoed the american position, which is they won't go to the table unless the settlement -- another moratorium on settlements, in which c
proof of chemical weapons being used by the government in syria. so i think the two actually see eye-to-eye on that. i think the big problem really has been iran. they don't -- the u.s. and israel don't see eye-to-eye, but they have each other's back. i think that's kind of, you know, the best way to put it. it is -- it has long been the u.s.'s strongest ally in the middle east. and the u.s. has been israel's biggest friend. that doesn't mean that there haven't been a lot of bumps along the road. and there have been again particularly for these two men and it's been around iran. i know one of the reasons that the president took this trip and one of the things he wants to emphasize here is to assure the israelis, not just benjamin netanyahu, but the israelis at large that the u.s. will not let iran acquire a nuclear weapon. there's still probably going to be a difference of opinion about when one might say, hey, too late, we've got to move. nonetheless it's important that they have the same goals. they don't always see eye-to-eye on how to get there. >> candy crowley, host of "state o
about destabilizing jordan and giving us maybe an advantage in iran if the syrian government changes and the fallout with israel. i think the long-term issue is do we have values that want to prevent this kind of thing? after all, europe finally did it and we were with them in bosnia. we didn't do it in rwanda. we did act in libya which has less strategic interest for us than this. i think there is no choice any more. i was very cautious for a long time and applauded obama for being cautious, but now we have reached the tipping point. >> we will come back to this. we have a lot of other news to cover as well. >>> first leg of mark sanford's shot at political redemption is complete. he easily clenched a spot in the runoff for the charleston area congressional seat. what is still unclear who his opponent will be. following thin voter turnout, bostic and grooms separated less than 1%. now sanford will try to cobble together support for those who voted for other candidates in what was a packed field flanked by his sons, sanford invoked the importance of putting the country's financial ho
that if -- if -- if our small businessman has to pay more money to the government, then he's going to have less money to pay to his ememployers, and the ememployers will have less money to send kids to the school of their choice. i think it's a matter of talking about the debt differently. not just we are in imminent danger in a debt crisis in this country. but what does that mean to people? it means that our government is growing so fast and it's becoming so expensive that we're making payments to our credit cards that we can't afford, which means we have to keep -- we'll keep having this debate about needing more revenue to the government. well, that means less money in people's pockets. it means less money at home. less money to put in your car. we have to tell the history of our party. the history of freedom and opportunity and equality. which we're not doing. and in your report earlier -- i think -- go ahead. sorry. >> yeah, listening to sarah palin, the republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, what she said at cpac this weekend. >> the next election is 20 months away. now is the time to fu
counterparts about what's going on in syria. did the government in syria use chemical weapons against its own people. that's a big question. obviously the nuclear showdown with iran. the presidentister wants assurance if that diplomacy doesn't bear fruit that the president of the united states is prepared to put the military option on the table. and, yes, the president did say he wants to have peace in the holy land and he will make that a priority. no accident the president says that this is the first international trip of his second term. >> this is no accident. across this region, the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> reporter: now, remember, carol, the first big trip of the president's first term was that trip to cairo. he gave that big speech promising more outreach to the arab and muslim world. some israelis took offense, they didn't think he took en
that faith and seek the power of government to impose it on others. >> at that time, diane sawyer was there. you were there. it is interesting that those two men, especially mr. mondale, agreed that you and diane sawyer could be on the panel. >> yeah and jim was the other one from "the new york daily news." >> i was certainly surprised. >> i was a reporter for "the baltimore sun" and covered the national politics. i was also, by then, i had gotten more interested in politics, and i was writing a press column for "the american spectator" magazine. >> conservative? >> conservative. and i guess the mondale people didn't recognize that. i think my questions were very fair. i like mondale. mondale is a wonderful guy. >> you know, that whole atmosphere was different. there was the league of women voters. >> you have battled barbara walters. what role did she play? >> she was the moderator. they would answer a question and she would say, diane. she would move to the next one. >> what did it do for you? >> well, i got invited to be on "the mclaughlin group." that is how you originally asked about
used chemical weapons on a village in the north. the attack killed 31 people, and the government sealed off the area to keep out journalists and international observers. president obama says he is not sure. >> the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake. they must understand they will be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to terrorists. >> netanyahu agrees with president obama on syria. conservatives tried to use our relationship with israel to grab votes. they accused president obama of not getting it, of being dangerous. some called him the most anti-israel president in american history. >> i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendship and alliance between our two countries. i am absolutely convinced that the president is determined to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. the president has reaffirmed more than any other president that israel has a duty to defend itself. it is a profound honor to host you, the leader of the free world and
states understands the situation they're in and has their backs as he asks the israeli government to make some of these tough choices. >> are peace talks really a possibility in obama's second term? is he going to give a term like jimmy carter? is there any possibility he can do that? >> realistically, it's probably the third on the list that the interesting thing today is that president obama and prime minister netanyahu have not always agreed on iran in terms of the timetable or in terms of what's next or what the response should be. and the two are a year or so away from having to make some kind of strategic decision. they fails the sudden emergence of syria and the possible use of chemical weapons, and that has suddenly risen to the stop of the agenda. given that there are different palestinian factions, that looks further down the road. >> do either of you believe that assad used chemical weapons? or is that being deployed by some forces that have at stake the division between israel and the united states in a substantive way that would create tension. >> i don't know. i think there'
the government. even to keep guns out of the hands of criminals by a thorough background check. so we're going to face opposition, no question about it, but we're determined and resolute. >> which ones of these amendments that you talk about, an assault weapons man amendment, amendment dealing with the mental health issues, which realistically has a chance of passing? >> they all have a chance of passing, and we're not surrendering or abandoning any of them. the bill will include a ban on illegal trafficking and straw purchasing, which is critical to law enforcement people. they'll tell you police on the streets or state police, our law enforcement at the federal level, illegal trafficking is a scourge. and, of course, background checks are absolutely critical because right now the law prohibits sales to convicted criminals, drug addicts, seriously mentally ill and domestic abusers but can't enforce that provision if private sales are exempted. so close that loophole. and then, of course, school safety will be in the bill as well. and the amendment on the floor will be on assault weapons. clea
by the government grinch? the easter bunny, a victim of sequestration? well, nothing is definitely yet, but guests have been warned. politico go this explanation from a white house official. "because we distribute tickets to the easter egg roll far in advance, we alerted all ticket holders that this event is subject to cancelation, due to funding uncertainty, including the possibility of a government shutdown. however, we are currently proceeding as planned with the easter egg roll." republicans are doubtful. newt gingrich shared his outrage on twitter. shaleless! how else can you describe the threat to cancel white house easter egg hunt? maybe ma lettic, demagoguic. you try to fin the right words." we'll try to describe it at the bottom hour. >>> voters in south carolina heading to the polls for today's primary to choose the next house representative. one of those candidates just happens to be stephen colbert's sister, her name is elizabeth colbert bush. yes, she pronounces her name differently. in a rare interview, we see the serious side of stephen colbert. he sat down with jake tapper, host of
. has sad's regime, they're blaming the rebelses, they're blaming the government. so who has the access to the chemical weapons? who has the most to gain from this? >> reporter: first off there is no definite proof that chemical weapons were used. what we do know is in an area near allepo, both the regime and reb bem belels are saying some gas was given off and we've seen pictures taken from a hospital showing some soldiers and civilians obviously suffering from the effects of gas. this appears to have landed very close to rebel regime lines, but actually hit the regime more hard. as you said earlier, the rebels don't really have the chemical weapons and if they did, that would suggest the assad stockpile has fallen into their hands. the regime is saying the rebels did have it, but the assad regime are the ones with the large chemical stockpile. once again no definitive proof they were used at all, but a serious development. >> one that the president had spoken about hypothetically back in august when he used the words red line. here he was in august. >> we have been very clear to the a
itself. we have 40% of every dollar borrowed to sustain government. we have a fed that buys 75% of what the treasury spends every year. where we have a congressional budget office that says in just 12 years we will only have enough to pay for interest and entitled and nothing else. >> now, if you watch way too early you know that already. elizabeth colbert-bush. the sister of stephen colbert. she stressed the importance of building up the workforce. >> we're going to continue with workforce development, continue with continuing education and we're going to make sure we have research technology and innovation that's going to make our next generation prepare for their intellectual move forward into the 21st century jobs. >>> now to kentucky. new reporting suggests a number of big-time democrats not particularly thrilled with the idea of ashley judd challenging mitch mccouple in that state. some party leaders, including former president bill clinton, are trying to court another candidate, another female, allison lundergan grimes. ms. judd will make her announcement later this spring, a cla
that faith and seek the power of government to impose it on others. >> at that table, diane sawyer was there. were you there. it is interesting that those two men, especially mr. mondale, agreed that you and diane sawyer could be ob the panel. >> yeah and jim was the other one from the new york daily news. >> yeah. >> i was certainly surprised. >> i was reporter for the baltimore sun, covered the national politics. i was also, by then, i had gotten more interested in politics, and i was writing a press column for the american spectator magazine. >> conservative? >> conservative. and i guess the mondale people didn't recognize that. i think my questions were very fair. you know, one of the thing that is noticed particularly the among conservative journalism, journalist. if they are writing far newspaper or something, they know how to be fair. mean brit hume did this for year when he was an abc correspondent particularly covering the white house. i was scrupulously fair in covering the mondale campaign that year. like mondale. mondale is a wonderful guy. i doesn't agree with him. that didn't m
twice. and i'm thinking back to when they were in really bad shape. i'm thinking back to maybe mcgovern, when they really had a -- bob strauss came along. you know, like you, as a party chair and tried to rebuild out of what goodwill and a little bit of b.s., i guess, from bob. the idea was to rebuild. sometimes you just have to say, we have to hunker down, admit we're not too popular, and just hope time's going to change? what can you change with a political party? does any party ever say, let's do it different? and get away with it? clinton? >> well, yeah, i think bill clinton did that with the d.o.c. and sort of changed the direction of the party on policy. they've got to do that. the first thing i would do, were i a republican chair, is i would promote republicans. i'd give exposure to republicans who were pro-choice, who believe that a woman has a right to choose. i would try to show we are truly a big tent. i would try to put someone up who like marco rubio on immigration and say, look, this is the republican party position on immigration. if you house members don't want to follow
